The Desktop Manager is another program used to auto-update via the net any Logitech programs/devices you have installed on the computer. You can manually go to the Logitech site and download any updates you might need rather than let it auto-update, but you will have to remember to do this yourself rather than depend on the program to do it for you. It works the same way as the auto-update program that MS uses to update your Windows, but even MS's program can be disabled (however, with MS, you can't even get the update center to work until you enable it again).
If you want to uninstall Logitech's you can do so through the Add/Remove Program List...but if SP2 has disabled any part of it, it might not find everything it needs to uninstall itself. If that happens, you can use this program from MS to uninstall anything in the Add/Remove Programs List.
Windows Installer Cleanup Utility can be downloaded from the above link and it will remove installed programs that can't be uninstalled from the Add-Remove Programs List because you don't have the cd anymore or because the program itself can't locate its uninstall file info.
There is one version of this utility available for individual windows versions from W95, W98, ME, NT 4.0, 2K, XP, and Server 2003. Direct download can be reached at this link:
I just installed SP2, hurrah hurrah. Before I am going to sleep I need to know please, if I can uninstall Logitech Desktop manager? From what the reports say in Cnet, it probably shouldn't be on my computer and now with the new security on it, it told me that it was withholding certain parts of the program.
What are the actual functions of the Logitech Desk Manager? Do I need it?
If you could pls. let me know.
